Lillian Babaian
My name is Lillian and I am the lipstick loving, big curly hair obsessed blogger behind StudsandSapphires.com. It started way back in my youngster years when I would play with my mom's hair products, wear her clothes, and act out fashion and beauty commercials. Working in the fashion industry as a designer for major brands inspired me to use that knowledge and to kickstart my style tutorials. When I am not blogging, you can find me in the jewelry section at the mall or looking for the next best chips and guac restaurant. Arm and ring parties are my favorite kind of parties, Shihtzus are my favorite kind of dogs and I would take Chanel over anything, anyday!

Contrary to popular belief, fringe doesn’t have to be relegated to music festivals or sloppy weekend hangouts. Such a classic piece can

Spring-Ready in a Bohemian Chic Outfit Inspiration

The bare shoulder look is trending this season, not that it’s a new trend, but you'll notice that there are more brands creating off-the-shoulder looks. I couldn’t be happier about this because it allows me to embrace my Bohemian chic style and Esmerelda (from The Hunchback of Notre Dame) personality. It’s an effortless sexy and flirty style that can make even wearing jeans look romantic. This particular top I’m wearing
